I have several different methods of making coffee on the road, including 120V Drip, Old Style Stove-top percolator, French Press Pot and even Instant ... though I REALLY avoid the instant as it simply tastes awful to me. Lately it has been quite hot outside and humid too. I enjoy Iced Coffee on days like that. It's very refreshing and clears my morning brain, too. Sounds like a Win-Win. Aside from buying it from a shop (Dunkin' Donuts, StarBucks, etc., etc.) I've been making my own.

Once made, seal the container and place in the fridge. For the best taste, make sure you mix your favorite things into it AFTER you pour into your cup. Leaving milk/cream in a container of coffee in the fridge will make for some nasty mixes as it will separate out. I like half & half and a bit of sugar. Usually I use less creamer in Iced Coffee than I do in hot coffee. For me, it usually won't last the day, but as long as it's in an airtight container, you should be able to keep it overnight without too much flavor change. Once I try the "cold brewing" method I'll let you know if it lasts longer (and maybe tastes better?) Either way, a cold version of my favorite "eye opener" is a welcome addition to the beverage mix. Did I mention to use clean/clear ice for best results....
Almost any method of coffee making can be used to produce brew to be used in an Iced version. Try them all. Even the experiments taste pretty good!
